Shop and StudioWhen I started out on June 17th, 2012 I only had a small under powered table saw, a mitre saw and some hand tools. As of November 10th, 2016 I have acquired an number of older tools for my shop. In the beginning, I watched craigslist for the tools I wanted. Today my wish list is down to only a few power tools. What I need is space more than anything.
